May 8: Nice Weather Continues, Daily Links


Yesterday’s beautiful weather will continue into the first part of the work week, with abundant sunshine this morning, and a few fair-weather clouds floating through this afternoon. Temperatures will reach up to around 80° today:

Just a very slight shower chance in northeastern Middle Tennessee later today…the HRRR model’s radar simulation is not impressed with our rain chances:

We’ll be well into the 80s tomorrow (and Wednesday too):

Another slight chance of rain will take shape on Wednesday, mainly in southern Kentucky.  At this point I’m thinking that most of that should line up farther north, along the Ohio River — our RPM model is leaning toward that scenario:

The best chance of rain this week will arrive Thursday and Friday — right now I’d bet on a Thursday night and Friday time frame, but that’s still up in the air.  The European and American GFS models both agree that most of the day Thursday will be dry, but the Canadian model paints a significantly wetter picture.  We’ll keep you updated:

We should dry out again in time for a very pleasant Mother’s Day weekend!
